Zahra's teaching style is singular: focused, fun and memorable. The sum of Zahra's lessons was massively comprehensive: phonetics, grammar, extensive vocabulary and basic conversation topics. After each lesson, Zahra provides notes, handouts and homework that help the student review the current lesson and learn the next lesson. Zahra is passionate about teaching and celebrates her students' progress. She understands her students' learning styles and customizes each lesson to help the students reach their end-goals. Zahra strives to make herself available for students to provide flexibility for busy schedules. In short, Zahra is an excellent teacher and without a doubt makes learning a new language fun and engaging.

I would recommend Mrs. Mendez to anyone looking for improvement in Spanish regardless of their current level of understanding.

Ben Schwabb/physics & engineering tutor is a real professional: knowledgable, concise, thorough, and presents a well-planned lesson each time. He helped my high schooler pull up his physics grade dramatically and pre-taught an electrical engineering course to my college-age son to get a jumpstart on his fall class. Alex/director is extremely responsive, provides quality tutors quickly, and stays in contact to ensure client satisfaction. Every company should operate this way.

Julia has recently begun to tutor me in Russian and I have already learned so much in just a few short weeks. You can see that she thoroughly enjoys helping you and can break down the information in a way that you can understand it. Since she has been tutoring me, my grades have improved and my oral strength in the Russian language is much more solid than before. I can only speak on behalf of her language skills, but she is an awesome tutor and highly recommended!

Verified review

Ms. Belle has tutored my twins since September 2016. She is great with them and they love working with her. I have seen significant improvements in my kids' written ability in terms of clarity, volume, flow, and style. They are in the 5th Grade AAP Level IV program in FCPS and are now comfortable constructing multiple paragraphs to express their ideas or tell a story. My daughter is especially confident and excited in her writing since working with Ms. Belle. My son's ability to write about his passion for sports has soared. The effort is reflected in the last two report cards and in the grades that they receive on their language arts projects. I highly recommend Ms. Belle as a language arts tutor and we will continue to engage her services.

Bryan L.
Verified review

I'm in the foreign service and have trained long-term for professional-level fluency in three different languages (including at the Foreign Service Institute twice). Hilda is one of the best and most knowledgeable language teachers I have had (which has been over two-dozen). She's highly professional and was able to gauge my training to my learning-style and abilities very quickly. In addition, her level of knowledge of the language was very highly regarded by other Spanish-language teachers I've had. If you've studied a foreign language at a high level, then you're probably aware that not every native speaker is equal in his/her grammatical knowledge and vocabulary (I once had a teacher in a different language who didn't have vocabulary outside of daily-life usage). Hilda has a very in-depth understanding of grammar as well as specialized vocabulary in diplomacy, politics, business/economy, science/technology, the environment, culture, and the issues of the day. Most of all, she is a joy to be around. My level of speaking and reading is now ABOVE the 3/3 requirement of my employer! I'm thrilled, and I can't recommend Hilda highly enough!

I started working with Theo in February 2015. I found him very engaged and very enthusiastic about the subjects he teaches. He has a very deep understanding of the language arts and always willing to work with you on a curriculum based on the student's needs. I am an adjunct instructor at UW, and I will gladly recommend Theo any day. Don't hesitate to call me for references. Best, Ilanko

Peter A.
Verified review

Since March 2018 I have been taking one-on-one weekly lessons with Shaoling Liu. During that time, I have gained much more confidence in my ability to pronounce tones, which is critical to being understood. She also places a premium on listening to conversations at the speed of “regular Chinese-language speakers” speaking. She is very enthusiastic about teaching Chinese, and is always willing to do more for the students who take the initiative. For example, if you want to write materials, she will correct them; if you record your own speaking she will listen to it; and in these cases she will give you feedback between classes. She has grown up using simplified Chinese, but she knows the traditional characters, which is essential for what I want to learn. One of her previous students is now working in Taiwan. I recommend her to individuals interested in learning to speak and understand Chinese.
